New operating hours for Caritas Food Pantry
Caritas of Waco Food Pantry, 300 South 15th St., moved back to a Monday-Friday schedule starting Tuesday, May 26. Caritas will distribute food using a “drive-through” system 8:30-11 a.m. and 1-2 p.m.
Caritas staff, using social distancing methods, will come to each vehicle, will register occupants to receive food and will then place food items in the car trunk or truck bed. Recipients must empty their trunks and/or truck beds prior to coming to Caritas.
Because the food distribution is outdoors, it may be suspended during periods of rain and/or extreme heat. Individuals are encouraged to call Caritas at 254-753-4593 before coming if the weather conditions appear to make food distribution questionable.
